LTPP Manual for Profile Measurements and Processing

APPENDIX A. PROFILER PROBLEM REPORT FORM

In an effort to provide for a more uniform way of reporting, handling, and tracking problems associated with the LTPP pavement profile monitoring activities, the FHWA LTPP team has designed a Profiler Problem Report (PROFPR) form that is included in next page for use by the regional contractors.

The PROFPR form provides several major benefits, including a standard format for submitting problems associated with the profiler monitoring activities, an easy means of tracking when a problem was submitted, who is responsible for resolving it, whether or not it has been resolved, and how and when it was resolved, and reduced probability of problems being forgotten or falling through the cracks.

A profiler problem report must be submitted whenever there are equipment problems in the profiler, problems with data collection or data processing software, problems with data collection guidelines, or other problems related to profiling activities or profile data. If a problem was encountered, and it was resolved, and the operator/coordinator feels that this information would be useful to the other RSCs, an informational problem report should be submitted. When submitting an informational problem report, indicate that the problem report is being submitted for informational purposes in the description part of the form.

The Profiler Problem Report form is self explanatory except for the PROFPR number. The number consists of two parts as follows:

A letter code representing the agency submitting the problem, F for FHWA LTPP Division, NA for North Atlantic RSC, NC for North Central RSC, S for Southern RSC, W for Western RSC, and TSSC for TSSC, and O for others.

A number code representing the PROFPR number for the submitting agency, in sequential fashion starting from one.

For example, F-07 represents the seventh problem reported by the FHWA LTPP Team; and NA-23 represents the 23rd problem reported by the North Atlantic RSC.

Completed PROFPR forms must be submitted to the FHWA LTPP Team, with copies to the TSSC and to the profiler coordinator at each RSC office. Forms may be faxed or transmitted electronically via e-mail message, but the latter option is much preferred. A complete set of the PROFPR submittals will be maintained by the FHWA LTPP Team and LTPP TSSC. A copy of the report should be submitted to the RSCs for their information and action, as appropriate.
